RICHMOND, Va., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This week True Health Diagnostics will celebrate its commitment to women's health as employees participate in the 20th Annual Komen Central Virginia Race for the Cure®. True Health Diagnostics will also host a special event for staff and laboratory personnel. They will meet with the executive director of Susan G. Komen Central Virginia to discuss the importance of greater access to hereditary cancer genetic screenings.
"Supporting women's health is a central pillar of our business," said True Health Group CEO Chris Grottenthaler. "Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. True Health empowers practitioners to help more women understand their risk by making use of testing services like our hereditary cancer tests."
Last month, True Health Diagnostics launched its genTrue™ product, a hereditary cancer test designed for use by medical practitioners to identify individuals with suspected heritable cancer syndrome.
"We are delighted that employees from True Health will be participating as a team in our 20th Annual Komen Central Virginia Race for the Cure®," said Kristin Harris, Executive Director of Susan G. Komen Central Virginia. "The work that True Health is doing in the area of hereditary cancer testing is important to me both professionally and personally as a breast cancer survivor with a genetic mutation."
In addition to hereditary cancer genetic testing, True Health offers testing for hormone abnormalities, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes, chronic conditions that impact millions of women in the United States every year. Screenings for these and other conditions have been recommended for women by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force due to the significantly increased risk that women face.
"The Komen team looks forward to working with True Health in the future to educate individuals with family histories of breast cancer about preventative health options now available because of newer technologies," said Harris.
